After seeing thousands of girls and mom's over the last few weeks, at NAM open calls and training sessions, there is one question that I would like to address:

What should I wear for the Interview and Personal Introduction Competition?

2012-2013 NAM National Titleholders!

Picking that right interview outfit can be a bit tricky. You should pick an outfit that says "I'm ready for the job"! 
Choose something that shows your personality and stills shows off that professional edge. 
You can wear a suit,  a dress ,or even a pant outfit! Just pick something that you love and makes you feel confident!

Check out these fun of examples for what you can wear !

Where can you find interview outfits? 
You can check out your local department stores, look online or even have one made! There are lots of options for you to find the right look!
